Andrew Cuomo wants New York City to stop requiring fingerprinting of its food stamp recipients, a stance that puts him at odds with the city's mayor, who favors the practice.<p>Cuomo says fingerprinting stigmatizes needy people and stops them from applying for help. In a recent State of the State speech, Cuomo pledged to stop fingerprinting food stamp recipients this year.<p>But New York City Michael Bloomberg says without fingerprinting, fraud would escalate.<p>Besides Arizona, New York is the only place where the policy still exists.
